Red Bank NJ, Common Sense Club today announced that Senator Mike Testa (R-LD1) will be the prime Senate sponsor of the “Parental Bill of Rights”, soon to be introduced in the New Jersey legislature.

Red Bank NJ, Common Sense Club today announced the creation of a “Parental Bill of Rights”, soon to be introduced in the New Jersey legislature. This effort recognizes that the most important people involved with a child’s development are the parents and the law should reflect that fact. Similar to what was recently passed in Florida, the bill will provide that “the state, its political subdivisions, any other governmental entity, or other institution may not infringe upon the fundamental rights of a parent to direct the upbringing, education, health care, and mental health of a minor child.”
